    But a lot of the time it depends on what part it is determining where it will come from

    Depends on what I'm ordering. The custom stuff from small fab shops generally come from CA. General parts usually ship from a local warehouse.

    Yeah I feel the same way too. Most of my stuff comes from the West coast and it always take a whole week to get here.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    What kind of deals are you talking about, are you talking about sales tax? All CA sales (store location in CA) over the internet are taxed, no matter where the buyer is located.
    If a CA buyer purchases something over the internet in another state (store location in different state), it is not taxed. Except if the state has a sales tax for the internet, which most states don't have.

    So yes if I buy something over the internet here is CA, and the seller is located in TX (which doesn't have a sales tax over the internet), I get a deal because I don't have to pay sales tax. But I may have to pay more for shipping.

    its ironic because, technically, Cali is the most strict and least lenient state in terms of automotive modifications, but in turn it is also the most developed in terms of the automotive modifications market.

    I order most of my stuff off of ebay depending on what it is and about 75% of it comes from the westcoast while the other 25% seems to come from the eastcoast area.:rolleyes: But I live in NV so I love it when it comes out from Cali!! Gets to me within 2-3 days tops.:D

    No deal in particular just wondering if it comes from the other side of the country.
